As a party planner, I have spent many hours trying to find the right audio visual components for the different occasions that I have to plan for. Teenagers love to have movies played in the backgrounds of their parties. Brides love to have pictures of their courting days with their new grooms. Families enjoy watching videos and picture slides of the years that have gone by at reunions. All of the time that I have spent searching and setting up the equipment has given me a lot of knowledge to share. My site will help you learn the basics of buying or renting equipment and setting it up for the perfect resolution.
If you install audio visual equipment, you probably use your fiberscope on a regular basis, especially when installing the wiring inside the walls. Without a fiberscope, it can be impossible to see hidden wiring problems without opening the walls. To keep your fiberscope functioning properly, and avoid costly repairs, you need to take proper care of your equipment. Here are four steps that will help prevent problems with your fiber scope.
Avoid Corrosive Liquids
Fiberscopes are designed to stand up to heavy work. However, that doesn't mean they can handle corrosive liquids. If you're working near corrosive liquids, you need to make sure that you keep your fiberscope as far away from the liquids as possible. Corrosive liquids can destroy the wiring and the optic components of the device. If you're not sure which types of liquids should be kept away from your fiberscope just follow this simple rule: if you can't touch the liquid with your bare hands, keep your fiberscope away.
Radiation can pose a serious threat to your fiberscope. If you're going to be working near any type of radiation, you should refrain from using your scope. Exposure to radiation can discolor the fiber optics and cause your scope to reduce the intensity of its light transmission.
Never Force the Coil
When feeding your scope through walls and other workspaces, never force the coil. Applying too much pressure to the coil can damage the wiring and break the optic lens. Instead, feed the coil through slowly and gently. If you meet with resistance while feeding the coil through, back up and try feeding it through from a different angle.
Clean the Optics After Each Use
To ensure that you always have consistent clarity through your fiberscope, the optic lens should be cleaned after each use. Failure to clean the lens can cause oils and dirt to build up, which will reduce the view you receive from the scope. To keep your optics clean, simply with the lens of with a soft cloth and ordinary window cleaner before you put your scope away. Be sure to use a lint-free cloth to prevent lint build-up on your lens.
You depend on your fiberscope. To ensure that your scope is ready when you need it, you need to keep it in good condition, and avoid damages that could lead to costly repairs. Use the tips provided here to keep your scope working properly.
